Retired programmer. Aaah freedom! Worked for many many years writing software for factory automation and the oil industry. I wont say how many years but does anybody remember the DEC PDP-8 (Not the PDP-11, the PDP-8) 8 instructions, 1 accumulator, set the breakpoint by toggles on the front panel, max 16k core :-)
Now I'm doing my own projects. things that interest me. An On-line digital library of Sanskrit manuscripts with a sophisticated search engine.
I'm currently working on developing OCR software to read the languages of Northern India. That'll keep me busy for a while :-)
